Cask Ale Week 2023


The 21st September to 1st October is Cask Ale week! Cask Ale Week is an annual celebration of Britain’s national drink – cask beer!

At Mac’s our heritage started with brewing cask beer, the first being AK. We also have our Country Best Bitter, IPA, and regularly release guest beers to stock across our pubs.

McMullen AK – 3.7%

This Original Mild has been continuously brewed in Hertford by six generations of McMullens for over 185 years. A balanced mixture of pale, crystal and chocolate malts form the basis of this 3.7% amber cask ale, with one variety of Kentish hops - Witbread Goldings - adding bitterness and light aroma.

Country Best Bitter – 4.3%

Country Best Bitter has a distinctive aroma and flavour from a mix of English hops. The combination of locally farmed and malted pale and crystal malts with Fuggle, Progress and Bramling Cross hops bear a fruity, ripe pear and light caramel flavour with a pronounced, lingering bitterness.

McMullen IPA – 4.8%

Our IPA is one of the first and remaining traditional East India Pale Ales of its kind. Mahogany in colour, the blend of roasted malts and whole leaf hops combine to produce a rich, fully-bodied, 4.8%, classic strong ale with hints of chocolate, roasted coffee and orange zest.
